Hi, friend! Thanks for visiting.

Fishcakes is your one stop shop if you're in need of some benevolent monsters. Especially monsters with feelings. Here at Fishcakes, we are pro-emotion. Whether you're angry, sad, confused, or excited, we've probably got a magnet for your fridge or a button you can wear to let the world know.

Or, perhaps you want to wear your love for your special interest or talent on your sleeve (or lapel, backpack, or ballgown.)

We've been making monsters since 2001, and are steadily working our way toward 250 button designs. Our monsters aren't afraid to show their love for words and science, naps and bowties, making stuff and getting stuff done. They're enthusiastic about so many things, but they've got a little anxiety, too. They're unlikely to hide their apprehension about the uncertainty of the future or the availability of snacks. Perhaps you can relate.

If you need a cuddly soft friend for tea parties, board meetings, or just to hold close while you're watching the news, we make an assortment of screenprinted animals as well as one-of-a-kind monster sidekicks for your inner or outer child.
